The book “Zak / Zackie Oh” started out in 2016 as a textual and photographic project by journalist Maria Louka and photographer Alexandros Katsis narrating the life experiences of Zak Kostopoulos, a young LGBTQI+ activist. A series of meetings, discussions and interviews with Zak, and their combined creative ferment, led to the creation of a patchwork of words, thoughts and images. With its uncut scenes of everyday passion and struggle, ruminations on existence, love and major social issues, glitter, humor, disappointments, emotions, hashtags, and spontaneous outbursts of speech, the book feels more like the private diary of person whose unpretentious and deeply political voice exerts huge charm. Its pages document Zak’s everyday experiences, from the introversion of his private life to the captivating extroversion of his alter ego, drag queen Zackie Oh. And Zak’s story also captures a community’s ongoing struggle for equality and respect.

Electricity is flow. And flow is information, transition, bombardment. In fact, we speak about a procedure of transmission of data. In his theoretical approaches, Georg Simmel is observing the metropolitan areas, because of the huge informational flow, as “areas under attack”.

Critical review on

Yorgos Yatromanolakis’ new Photo – book

Check it here

From the project statement by Yorgos

The Splitting of the Chrysalis & the Slow Unfolding of the Wings” arose from my unforeseen return to my homeland and my residence there for four years. Isolated in the countryside of the island, Ι was constantly confronted with my traumatic past, my memories and myself. Gradually, through wandering in nature, a conceivable field of action was created within me, an intermediate space full of transformative dynamics, a place of becoming.

Interview with Klavdij Sluban

Check it in Aldebaran.photo

Winner of the Niépce Prize (2000) and of the Leica Prize (2004), Klavdij Sluban is a French photographer of Slovenian origin based in Paris. Now aged 42, he continues the development of his rigorous and coherent body of work. Sluban learnt the subtleties of black & white printing under the guidance of Georges Fèvre. Although he held a Masters’ degree in Anglo-American literature, little by little, he gave up teaching to commit wholly to photography. Never inspired by immediate and sensational current affairs, Sluban’s numerous photography trips are permeated with literary references ­ for example, Beckett, Milton. The Black Sea, the Caribbean, the Balkans, and Russia can be read as many successive steps of an in-depth study of a patient proximity to the encountered real.

 

“Leaves of October”

Phases Magazine

Once upon a time there was the Polis. People were gathering in the “Boulevards” to socialize, flirt, discuss and even, when needed, break the boulevards down. The main topic of discussions have always been the same: the state of the world and what are the means to change it. Unfortunately, between the Symplegades of NATO’s imperialism and Soviet Union’s hatred against the revolutionary constitution of “October”, the visions of western avant-garde were finally crashed.

The “Observatory” is a construction within a construction, a mechanism that bridges proximity with distance, a switch between passive and active control, an attempt to defamiliarize the bearer of representation in order to regain its content, an experience of reflected gaze, an experiment of reverse reconstitution of the photographic act.

More about Group exhibition

“The Equilibrists” is a project organized by the New Museum, New York and the DESTE Foundation in collaboration with the Benaki Museum, Athens, on the occasion of DESTE’s 33rd anniversary.
This project continues the DESTE Foundation’s history of supporting talented emerging Greek artists. On the occasion of its anniversary, rather than focusing on its past, the Foundation is looking forward with a focus on the future of young art in Greece.

“The Equilibrists” brings together work by a new generation of young Greek and Cypriot artists working in Athens and abroad. The artists were selected by the New Museum curators, Gary Carrion-Murayari and Helga Christoffersen, drawing on their own research and the recommendations of a team of more than 20 advisors made up of curators, artists, and writers in Greece, and following trips to Athens, Thessaloniki, Cyprus, London, and Berlin.
